Voltage Reference Application and Design Note

What and Why is a Voltage Reference?

Conceptually, a voltage reference is a very simple device with only one purpose in its life. Quite simply, the purpose of a voltage reference is to generate an exact output voltage no matter what happens with respect to its operating voltage, load current, temperature changes or the passage of time.

The purpose of this Application Note is to provide an understanding of voltage references, their limits of error, and interesting application circuits using high accuracy voltage references. The Intersil X60008 voltage reference approaches the design in a new and exciting topology that provides extremely tight initial tolerance, low temperature drift, and unbelievably low operating current.
